? is it. there's a reason obama got a bounce and romney did a thud. one guy people really love in charlotte giving the speeches of their lives, bill and michelle and deval patrick and castro. remember what romney got? chris christie up there giving testimonials to themselves. they barely got around to paying for their supper they were so full of themselves. romney has had two chippies, going over to get acquainted with the brits and going to tampa to get the kudos. in both cases he ended up laying more eggs than the easter bunny but people like the easter bunny. joining me is howard fineman and jim vandehei. it seems to me what happened the last two weeks was patently obvious. within convention worked, one didn't. one was sweet, one was sour. one you felt the vibes of happiness. the other one was you felt something but it was usually hatred of the president. >> yeah. well, chris, i spent every evening on the floor of the convention at both conventions, and at the republican convention there was a dutiful feel to it, and as you said, a lot of the speakers were speaking for thems

. and what a crowd we have. we're just four hours away from president obama's speech in this election suppressing the voters has become a key part of the republican strategy. and for almost 50 years this country has had no greater champion of voting rights than the man speaking now at the podium. voter i.d., voter suppression is something that they have brought out in many states this year. my concern is that a generation ago we fought with the man that is speaking at the podium to get us the right to vote today in this generation people like you and i have to fight to maintain the right to vote. this morning reverend joe lowry of one generation and me of another stood together saying this vote should not be compromised. and this election no matter who you're supporting. no matter who you're voting for, this election cannot be the turning back of voting rights. at the podium, let's listen to congressman john lewis of georgia. let's listen. >> -- than we were in 1961. and in 2008 we showed the world the true promise of america when we elected president barack obama. a few years ago a m

for four more years for president barack obama. an address tonight from the first lady. keynote tonight from a young fast-rising star who even republicans say could be the first latino president. the democrats make their case for young voters, latinos, for women, middle class. it starts tonight. msnbc's prime time coverage of the democratic national committee begins right now. ♪ >> thank you for joining us. i'm rachel maddow. here with me are ed schultz,al sharpton, steve shmitt. lawrence o'donnell will be joining us as well. leading our coverage from charlotte, north carolina, the site of the democratic convention this year, it is, of course, my friend and colleague chris matthews. chris, the data is mixed on whether republicans got any sort of bump in the polls out of their convention last week. but beyond just the raw numbers, what do you think that the democrats most want and need to get done this week? >> well, the numbers may tell you something. there was no bounce at all hardly at all from the republicans. but for the difference in the sound and feel of the crowds, last week wa
. president obama's acceptance speech. bill clinton certainly set the stage last night with a powerful rousing address. now it's up to president obama to deliver. and what he says here just a few hours from now could have a huge impact on whether he gets another four years in the white house. so we're just moments away from the day's opening gavel. you'll see it all here unfolding live. president obama says he'll share his vision for the future tonight. and his aides say he'll offer some concrete proposals at the same time. but what does he need to say in this crucial appearance, gloria borger, candy crowley are both here. the challenge for him, we know he's a great order, there will be poetry and pros and all of that, but the country wants some substance as well. >> yeah. i think president obama needs to convince the country that he can fix the economy, period. there's a lot of disaffected, disappointed democrats out there who are watching this convention, who watched mitt romney's convention. and they want somebody who can improve their lives. and i think the case has been made about the pas
in front of president obama? you're going to find out in a matter of a few seconds. plus, one hour from now the democratic national convention formally kicks off. tonight, the president's most powerful political weapon takes center stage. and with the enthusiasm building here in the convention hall, republicans are already pouncing. they're seizing on the grade the president gives himself for improving the economy. i'm wolf blitzer in charlotte, north carolina. and you're in "the situation room." >>> this just coming into "the situation room." we want to get straight to our brand new cnn/orc polls on the state of the race for the white house on this the heels of the republican national convention in tampa. take a look at this. an actual tie. mitt romney and president obama both at 48% among likely voters. romney gets post-convention boost of just one percentage point while president obama has dipped one percentage point. our chief national correspondent, john king, is over the magic wall along with democratic poster peter hart with a very first look at the numbers. john, a statistical margi
losing jobs. but it's not enough. wolf, in fairness to the obama administration, we have created jobs in the private sector, which is where you want them created, for 30 months in a row. the trend is correct. this just isn't a big enough number. >> they did revise the previous two months to show that 40,000 jobs they thought had been created really weren't. isn't that right? >> that's correct. so every month we get revisions to the two prior months. in this case they were revisions lower. what that means is if president obama were to want to claim that he has made up for all the job losses since the day he took office, he needs another 260,000 jobs created in th next two months. there will be two more jobs reports before the election, the last one will be four days before the election. it's a milestone that doesn't matter to most people. and if you're unemployed it certainly doesn't matter to you. but it will give him the ability to say i inherited the worst economy since the eat depression and i made up for you can bee they achie ch. that, it will be a nice democratic ad the weekend
to help all americans struggling in the obama economy as he has made known all year. he is concerned about the growing number of people who are dependent on federal government. nearly one in six americans in poverty and the 23 million americans struggling to find work. mitt romney's plan creates 12 million new jobs in four years, grows the economy and moves americans off of government dependency and into jobs. folks, this is an admission as far as mitt romney is concerned. there are two americas and he only cares about one of them. does mitt romney really think that people in this country want to be on medicare and want to be poor, want to be disabled, want to have assistance? is that really the path that he thinks that americans want to take? and most americans i believe tonight, especially liberals, will be offended by the comment. my job is not to worry about those people, i'll never convince them that they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives. personal responsibility. personal responsibility. those of you in nursing homes, those in wheelchairs, those who depend
